  • Do not wait – Go ahead and register now even if you are waiting for your MIGS approval and/or your Rand status update.


In some situations, PSAC members are not yet, or have ceased being, members in good standing (MIGS) and lose the right to participate in ratification votes.  These include:

  • Maintaining Your Status When on Extended leave
    • If you are on extended leave (e.g., long term disability, maternity or parental leave, etc.) you are no longer a member in good standing (MIGS), therefore, you must make a request to remain in good standing to the National President via this online requisition form. Once your request has been approved, please forward the confirmation you received by email to ncr-vote@psac-afpc.com in order to ensure your vote is counted.
  • Signing Your Union Rand Card
    • If you have never signed a union card, please fill out the membership application card online which will update your Rand status during the voting period. Following your submission, please forward the email confirmation you will receive to: ncr-vote@psac-afpc.com which will ensure your vote is counted. 
    • If you have difficulty at any time in the process, please contact your PSAC Regional Office at ncr-vote@psac-afpc.com or by phone 613-714-4829.


  • The PSAC constitution, Regulation 15C requires all members to attend a mandatory information portion of the session before they vote. The mandatory portion usually lasts about 10 to 20 minutes. These sessions will be held on the Vogo platform and will also allow members to ask questions after the mandatory portion, regarding the content of the tentative agreement. The date and time of the session is listed below.
    • Note, attendance will be tracked, and only those who attended the information session in its entirety, will have their member profile updated on the e-voting system, ensuring that their vote is counted.
  • Accommodation
    • If you require any accommodation in order to participate fully in the webinar (such as ASL interpretation), please contact the PSAC Regional office as soon as possible at ncr-vote@psac-afpc.com or by phone 613-714-4829
  • Technical notes
    • Please join the session 5 to 10 minutes early to make sure you are able to log-in and address any technical problems in advance.
    • Please note that we strongly encourage you to join the Information Session by web browser instead of a tablet, smartphone or telephone.
    • We do not recommend joining by phone unless you have no other option, those joining by phone will not have access to the question box or the visual presentation, and must also complete an additional identification process in order to confirm their attendance and ensure they are eligible to vote. 
    • Please ensure to use your personal device to access the webinar, as the employer’s network will often restrict access to the software used.


Only after you have attended a mandatory information session in its entirety, and your membership status has been confirmed, will your vote be counted. You will be able to vote online immediately. If you are not ready to vote, you may log on later to the same site you used to register using the same voter Ballot number and PIN that you received from Vogo on April 8th (Communications@psac-afpc.vote). Please verify your junk and promotional folders before calling or emailing.
